I'm a big fan of SmartWool socks. Great material...warm and comfortable. These are the first SmartWool socks I've owned that work down off your ankle and leg and bunch up in your boots. Maybe not enough elastic??? I guess these will be for around the house.

Excellent socks. Have used SmartWool for a long time but these are particularly good. Warm without being bulky and they seem as though they will wear well. Have only had them a couple of weeks so ask me again in 6 months!.

These socks are very comfortable, but unfortunately they are not very durable. I love merino wool socks, and in particular SmartWool socks. I probably have 10 pair in my sock drawer currently. I have had two pair of these socks for 8 months now, and they have both already had to be retired due to excessive wear in the heel. I haven't subject these socks to the abuse that I typically do with my hiking socks, as these were only worn to work and around town. My other SmartWool socks like the light hiker, Phd, and toe socks have easily been going for two years now without any sign of deterioration. Highly recommend to not venture out on the trail with these socks, as they will fail on you. I would buy these again, as they are comfortable. However, I would wait and use an additional 35% off coupon, as I don't believe they are worth more than $7/pair.

Merino socks are the way to go ... very comfortable, plenty durable, and they don't stink. Trouble is: most are too expensive. I go to Sierra Trading Post for the great deals in socks .... when I like one style, like this, I buy a bunch of them. Great deal.
